What is the DSECT program?
The DSECT program offers opportunities across a broad spectrum of research areas for trainees to learn together and from each other as a key impetus for filling the critical void of skilled and knowledgeable researchers in the area of drug safety and effectiveness.
DSECT is a one year virtual program delivered primarily online with some opportunities for in person experiential events.
What is the major goal of the DSECT program?
We aim to provide a training environment for future scientists in Canada who can undertake high-quality post-market research in the area of drug safety and effectiveness and training that is focused on integrative thinking within an interdisciplinary environment.
